Not surprisingly, MOMA’s recently opened exhibition Bauhaus 1919-1933: Workshops for Modernity has generated a considerable amount of press interest. For one, it is the first comprehensive showing of material from the school at MOMA since 1938. I’ve already posted links to a couple reviews over at Selectism, but wanted to share Eric J. Herboth’s views from DesignObserver here. The essays articulates well the context of the exhibition from the Museum’s perspective, for which I’m grateful.
The exhibition runs to January 25, 2009, and if you have not yet had the opportunity I recommend spending some time on the interactive site MOMA has prepared. Included is a timeline, a section outlining life at the Bauhaus, selected works, and the chance to take the Kandinsky questionnaire.
